Bill, I am really not buying the Articles of Confederation. It has so many flaws!
There are some upsides, William.
Why on planet earth does each state have its own currency? Also, why is there no chief executive or any way to enforce laws, foolishness!
In my defense, the colonies made the Land of Ordinance and the Northwest Ordinance which led us to three great new states without slavery. Lastly, we negotiated the Treaty of Paris with Britan under the Articles of Confederation. Pretty impressive!
We must revise the Articles of Confederation at once!
Im not opposed...
In May of 1787 twelve states sent a total of 55 delegates to help revise the Articles and make a better America! Yet, the states had to come to some major compromises.
I say the states have far to much power. More national government power!
You foolish fellow, the states should remain very powerful and the national government is weak!
